and russia, among other things, acted as a mediator between those two factions. >> i'm sorry. and did not get the last of sentence. >> that russia, one of russia's rolls was sort of to mediate between two factions. i got the sense that priscilla buckley and burnham were sort of distant ancestors of neo conservatives and meyer, of course, being a fusion test some -- the fusion test would have disagreements. was primarily about what conservative should do about the welfare state. um wondering what russia's role was in as ideological debates. >> a very good question. i would commend something he says which is, i don't believe there was much conflict about what position to take on the welfare state, but there was some. it was not russia's primary concern. his primary concern in terms of radiology was that national review must be in the logical, that the exact positions it took would very often be secondary, but that insofar as it had certain believe some these issues, in the issues, it should be really serious about holding other conservatives and especially public office holders

of control. second are nonprolifnonprolif eration agenda. negotiating the new s.t.a.r.t. treaty with russia was example of traditional diplomacy at its best. been working then working it through the congress was an example of traditional bipartisan support at its best. but we also have been working with partners around the world to create a new institution, the nuclear security summit, to keep dangerous materials out of the hands of terrorists. we conducted intensive diplomacy with major powers to impose crippling sanctions against iran and north korea but to enforce the sanctions we also enlisted banks, insurance companies in high-tech international financial institutions and today iran's oil tankers sit idle and its currency has taken a massive hit. this brings me to a third lever, economics. everyone knows how important it is. but not long ago it was thought that business drove markets and governments drove geopolitics. will, creating jobs at home is now part of the portfolio of diplomatic abroad. there arguing for, not economic rules of the road is based the same asia so we can make tra

made by russia to impose a ban of october mean, that is not scientific, ended his contract to -- contradictory to the law. it is stated very clearly that our expectation that russia will reverse that decision. fortunately we got some good news yesterday, and the scientific commission has now indicated that the u.s. cannot be considered a risk nations for bse, hopefully that will be confirmed this summer. with additional opening of markets. particularly, for our crops. last month, we talked about the opportunity that japan is a 40 for a wider market, which is good news. we have the free trade agreement and the opportunity that that presents. we have also seen mexico relaxed some of its restrictions on beef purchases, and today, hong kong was joining that list by indicating the willingness to take all of its own beef products of any age, less than 30 months. an expanded opportunity we're where the trade barriers are coming down. the beef barriers exist. it is important to have the resource and personnel to advocate for american farmers and ranchers all over the world, which i

that turned into her being the owner of a tv network. in america, the grandson of poor immigrants fled russia and that sun became the majority of the leader of the house of representatives. that is what the house of representatives and america is about. in north carolina, two mechanics , the wright brothers, gave us the gift of flight. they flew 18 feet in the air at that time, but they performed a miracle. as a result, only 66 years later, this country put a man on the moon and brought him back. that is who we are. we can do an enormous amount of great things. the wright brothers actually inspired were inspired by their father who gave them a toy helicopter. he never wanted his sons, orville and wilbur to fly after the original flight, no one gave them the permission to fighter jet. the only time they ever did, later that day, he took his 82-year-old father up into the air. rising 350 feet at that time. while milton shouted, go higher, higher. i think it is a great testament to what our country is about. in america, we do have higher expectations for our nation, just like milton had higher e

in provocative behavior. they are isolated themselves from the west of the world. russia and china, almost the whole world has condemned what they have done. as a result of that, it should be a great concern to the international community that they are continuing to develop their capabilities to threaten security. not only of south korea, but to the rest of the world. for that reason, i think that we must take steps to make very clear to them that that kind of behavior is unacceptable. >> are there any sort of steps you are contemplating taking? >> i think it is a combination of a number of things that we have to do. one is the diplomatic steps that have to be taken. bringing the security conflict together to condemn their actions is very important. to organize the international community to do that. this morning i talked with the defense minister of south korea and we both agreed that we must make sure that we made clear that we are going to continue to conduct exercises and deploy our forces in that area. we are going to continue to show the north koreans that we are fully prepared to de

right now. i don't see russia invading western europe. if there's a war with china, i don't see it being a groundwork, at least not with those involved. secretary panetta and the joint chiefs of staff a year ago, the most attention and one thing in that review that wasn't so well noted was the idea dictates an end of nationbuilding. the army and marines shall not size his forces for large-scale prolonged stability operations, which translated to english as no more iraq's and afghanistan. not just no more, but when you do your scenarios, when you crank your calculations to figure out how many troops you need, this is not even the scenario that should enter into the calculation. as you say, the small stuff is mainly special forces. some people, as you write have proposed setting up a special advise and assist. soldiers who would be specialists in the advisors to overseas armies. that is what a lot of the army is doing. but they are kind of in a pickle. they don't know what to do. there's something western california in the desert of the national training center. during the cold war. these

-on of russia back to my colleagues other than the most interesting omission is the lack of any detail in a procedural process. if their streets and side effects and intelligence led us to discover this hack should be kept classified, that's one thing. i am by the bureaucratic process was undertaken at the executive branch in the hypothetical case is a matter of national security. >> you can imagine the problem is we argue about everything. the idea we would put some kind of process forward. i fully understand your point and as a lawyer i think it's necessary. the idea that process will be put forward to be analyzed in a vacuum but that the exigency of circumstances, some in there would be a debate -- i understand your wanting, but under the present climate it's just almost impossible. >> i did there's a lot of merit to that point and i also think there's additional factor not about this body, but the litigation environment the is in. one of the problem within the bureaucracy, people are constantly worried about incremental effects on foia litigation that every disclosure has and i thi
